Does this diet (lifestyle change) work if you're super overweight? For instance, 303 lbs and 5'5" tall female? I see a lot of people who are 200-250 (and the higher end tend to be tall men, not short women) posting in various forums & stuff, but not many who are really, really big and wanting to change their lives. Can any...

I could be missing something, but it seems like there's a contradiction between the slow carb diet and the Chipotle diet. All the mentions of the Chipotle diet have cheese and sour cream - supposed no-no's on slow carb. Can anyone offer some insights? thanks.

However I have stayed at that weight for over a wee...

In my youth, I was pretty active with sports but now at 41, I don't do much - infact, the last 4 mths specifically has been 100% exercise free (no...

I have been at it almost 2 weeks with very minimal results on the scale and my measurements are exactly the same. I've reread the diet chapters in the book about 5 times because peop...
